Haha, the onion rented Foxnews' domain to write this! Right guys? no? so it's literally them saying "We're sure he didn't mean any of it!"

[QUOTE=tinhead50;37483214]Just because it is an opinion piece doesn't mean it can be without merit. It really depends on the contributor and how well the piece connects itself to the issue via logical analysis. In this case, your favorite website just boned you.[/QUOTE] so as long as it's a liberal author, an opinion piece is allowed?
[QUOTE=Glaber;37483676]so as long as it's a liberal author, an opinion piece is allowed?[/QUOTE] The news isn't the text in the article, it's the article itself, in context of its mother site; that's why this one is allowed.

[QUOTE=mac338;37483698]The news isn't the text in the article, it's the article itself, in context of its mother site; that's why this one is allowed.[/QUOTE] Well, unfortunately, this isn't news. Fox has Liberal opinion piece writers like Sally Kohn and Juan Williams. And they do write pieces that you find out of place for Fox, but it's not news. The very fact that stuff like this happens is old. in fact, have this piece from June 9, 2010 [url]http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2010/06/09/good-day-democrats/[/url]

Sally Kohn writes nonprofit op-eds for Fox, and she is indeed liberal. She also kicks tons of ass. Her live-Tweeting of the RNC last night was insightful, and fucking hilarious.
Fox has to look fair and balanced somehow, right? They do this by hiring some token democrats to write opinion pieces. Then, under the guise of neutrality they push their republican agenda.
Hmm... Fox news seems to be down.
[QUOTE=Andokool12;37482435]Didn't Fox say they were starting to lean more towards the middle a while back or something?[/QUOTE]No, they just have a small handful of token liberals (centrists at most compared to the general European political spectrum)
But would that mean he doesn't take politics seriously? Either the truth or this stellar bullshit excuse would be bad for him. [quote]The good news is that the Romney-Ryan campaign has likely created dozens of new jobs among the legions of additional fact checkers that media outlets are rushing to hire to sift through the mountain of cow dung that flowed from Ryan’s mouth. Said fact checkers have already condemned certain arguments that Ryan still irresponsibly repeated.[/quote] This is my absolute favorite section from the article.
"dozens of jobs" oh sweet 24 people are now hired until November!

I found the article on Fox Nation so you can read comments on it: [URL="http://nation.foxnews.com/paul-ryan/2012/08/30/kohn-paul-ryan-s-speech-3-words"]Link[/URL] [img]https://dl.dropbox.com/u/13781308/Untitled%20%282%29.png[/img]
If Fox news is saying this then holy shit

Disappear and make your own life and living in the wild. 3 is my favorite if America fucks over the economy together with Greece. So much fucking forest in Scandinavia, i'd never have to discover the shitstorm around me.
Sally Kohn is a lesbian Jew with a daughter who writes for Fox News you really couldn't make that shit up, i wonder if they spit at her when she goes to work.
How can you actually count on such a blatant liar to actually run a fucking country in the best interests of the people he's outright lying to. I'm going to say this again for posterity, just so you can realize how retarded your politics are overseas: This shit would never fly in Europe. Everyone who was ever caught in it suffered a serious backlash and wasn't elected. IF anyone was ever elected after such a thing, he'd pay mid-term and it'd be a literal acid-storm. Fuck guys. You either put up with a lot, or you really don't know how an election is meant to go. You listen to their policies, not their imbecile perception of other peoples policies. When their policies are anti-everything but White male Christian virgin, you vote for someone else. If bible be involved, you point and laugh.

Sally Kohn is a Democrat..

[QUOTE=Glaber;37489972]I'd expect that over at MSNBC, Fox I expect, would treat her with respect.[/QUOTE] From what I have seen most people on fox will just interrupt you and then cut off the debate if they disagree and you are winning.
Maybe, but they won't spit at her. In fact, as an example of how fox can be, when Juan was fired from NPR, Fox News hired him.
